Idol finale goes out on top

0

The weekly ratings numbers were delayed by the Memorial Day holiday, but you already know that Fox won the official TV season in 18-49 and CBS in Households. And you've surely guessed that the finale of "American Idol" on Fox was the week's top show, with the finale of "Dancing With the Stars" on ABC #2.


Fox, of course, won the 18-49 demo, with ABC 2nd and then CBS, NBC, Univision, CW, Telemundo, MyNetworkTV, TeleFutura and a tie by Ion and Azteca America. (It is also worth noting that Univision tied NBC for 4th place in the 18-34 demo.)

In HH, it was Fox at the top with a 6.9 rating and 12 share, followed by CBS 6.0/11, ABC 5.8/10, NBC 3.7/7, Univision 2.0/3, CW 1.3/2, Telemundo and MyNetworkTV tied at 0.6/1, Ion 0.4/1, TeleFutura 0.3/1 and Azteca America 0.2/0.
